Pottermore? Yes, please.

I'm sure that you have heard of the announcement from JK Rowling that will be happening in 6 days, 12 hours, 20 minutes, 0 seconds (and counting). If not, check out the website

First, I love her handwriting. Second, how freaking cute is this website? The font? Amazing. The owls? My favorite.
You can also keep JK Rowling's YouTube channel countdown open at all times, like me!

Does this woman know how to create hype, or what? The Harry Potter community is going crazy right now. So, if you know me, you know I love speculating and analyzing. Lets do this.

I have heard that it will NOT be a new book (sad face), but this doesn't rule out an encyclopedia (happy face). I have also heard speculation about an online role-playing game (I could be down with this). Another announcement that I would be jumping for joy about is that rumored documentary of the filming of all seven (well, 8) films. 

The possibilities are really endless and I have no clue what this will be. One thing I do know is that this could not have come at a better time. With the last movie approaching, Harry Potter fans are finding themselves in sort of a funk. Yes, we want "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2" to grace the screens of our movie theaters, but it is also a bittersweet moment. What happens when the movie exits theaters? There are no more midnight releases to get excited for, no more book releases to speculate about. Nothing. Nothing but the memories of a wonderful journey and the knowledge that we will someday pass the wonderful world that is Harry Potter down to future generations. So, with this, I am super pumped about this JK Rowling announcement. WHAT WILL IT BE?

What do you think she will announce? Are you as excited as I am? Any thoughts on the Potter phenomenon coming to a close? Please discuss this with me in the comments. I NEED TO TALK ABOUT HARRY POTTER*!
*I'm not yelling, this is just a desperate plea. Kay, thanks.


  1. Ok I'm like a commenting freak on every blog tonight haha but I just wanted to say I AM SO FREAKING EXCITED. The idea that there is less than a month till HP is over FOREVER makes me want to crawl into my bed and cry for days. I'm really hoping whatever Pottermore is allows HP to continue and live on despite the books/movies being wrapped up.
